Who We Are

We believe that every young person has the power to create positive change and make a life-changing impact on their community. At our Global Leadership Training Program, we help individuals discover their best selves, develop and maximize their full potential, and create change for the benefit of others. Our organization embodies the belief that every human being has the potential to be a great leader.

How We Started

Our journey began with international exchange programs (SSEAYP and SWY) funded by the Cabinet Office of Japan. Our experiences in these programs transformed us, and we believe that every young person should have the opportunity to participate in these amazing programs. This is the inspiration behind GLTP - to bring life-changing leadership programs closer to more young people.

I live by the belief that "A mind stretched by a new experience can never go back to its old dimensions." My leadership journey involved organizing safe spaces for intercultural dialogue and understanding. These experiences helped me grow and led me to pursue postgraduate studies in public health to promote intercultural health communication.
